After years of trying to be a more adventurous dresser, I still put on a black tee-shirt and think “THIS is my favorite thing to wear.”
It’s a beautiful dress (fully-lined, gorgeous fabric), and I like the juxtaposition of this dressy piece with a casual t-shirt. Knotting the t-shirt gave the outfit a waistline (if I’d just left it loose, it kind of looked like a paper sack, and not in a good way), and also added a little spark to a plain t-shirt.
Plus, I like the contrast of black and yellow.
Black shoes aren’t the most summery, but when they’re patent leather (or, you know, totally fake patent leather), then they are perfect.
